PostSubject: 4e Forever Issue #2 update: Calling all artists   Thu Nov 14, 2013 8:58 am

The good news regarding issue #2 is that I have gotten a lot of high quality submissions. Next issue will feature articles on Warforged in Serd (complete with a new Epic Destiny), an article presenting Orcs as a playable race, one on Ophidians as a playable race (this one has some exciting fluff tying them to the 4e Forever world and comes from a contributor here, Duskweaver), a piece on creating your own powers, one on multiple outside-the-box uses for items in an adventurer's kit (no sunrods of course), a new character class for 4e (the Soulknife), and of course, my long overdue Stronghold rules, as well as part 2 of the megadungeon serial adventure "Tales of the Lost City". It is going to be quite awesome. I am just moving pretty slowly with it. Part of it is that I am waiting on some revisions to come back, and part of it is that I have been so covered up that when I get a five minute break I do not feel like writing. I am pushing through it though, as best as I can.

One thing that I desperately need is artwork. I have gotten by on public domain artwork in the past, and will continue to use it, but as we get into more specialized subject matter, I really need original artwork. Specifically, I need images of Warforged, Orcs, castle and/or manor house construction, items from an adventurer's kit (save sunrods), and "generic" battle scenes. If you or anyone you know likes to draw or paint, etc, please let them know that I am looking. This is a free zine, so there is no pay, but I can link to your sites and help promote your work. Despite being a very niche product, I still got an amazing amount of traffic and response to the first issue, and it could be a good way to feature your work. Leave me a comment or shoot me an email at frothsof@gmail.com for more info.

I think that is awesome!

Let me be clear. You guys could close your eyes and move a pencil at random on a piece of paper and draw better than me. My favorite D&D art is also the old-school stuff; I have had people on the WOTC forums make fun of me for liking it. I prefer the art to have character. I just want art from people that like 4e and want to be a part of the zine. If you want to draw some stuff in this style Garth, that would be killer. Like I mentioned above, I have several articles that need some help. Duskweaver is a talented artist and already did some Ophidian drawings, but any drawings of castles or manor houses (especially being constructed), orcs, battle scenes, mundane gear from adventurer's kits (rope, bedrolls, etc) or warforged would be amazing.

I'd love to draw up a warforged or two...What character classes are you looking for? I'm also quite cool with doing it old-school (ie: pencil and/or ink, no digital) If you want color, I'd probably color it in Photoshop, though.

Also, do you want action or static, in an environment, or a portrait/anatomical drawing, etc?

In the zine the Warforged fluff is basically that they were created in ancient times and forgotten and locked in stasis in recently discovered ruins. They dont really recall their creation or masters, though some arcanists and members of various occult societies are trying to "unlock" this info. I would be happy with any and all warforged images, but if something in what I just mentioned gives you any ideas, run with it. I def prefer black and white, old-school so that would be awesome. If you have a website or any other stuff online let me know and I will make sure to link it; I could also put up contact info if anyone wants to hire you freelance down the line after seeing it. There is no rush; probably wont be done for months so take your time. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
